Little to shout about for Norwich City internationals

Norwich City's long-distance international brigade had a largely fruitless weekend on World Cup qualifying and friendly duty.
On-loan striker Kei Kamara played for Sierra Leone as they were beaten 2-1 by Tunisia in their African Group B qualifier in Rades, but his side's only goal came from substitute Alhassan Kamara.
Defender Sébastien Bassong was an unused substitute for Cameroon in their 2-1 home victory over Togo in the Group I match in Yaounde, where Samuel Eto'o scored both goals for the hosts.
Striker Simeon Jackson played just six minutes for Canada in their 2-1 friendly defeat by Japan in Doha on Friday. Jackson won his 34th cap for his country when he replaced Julian De Guzman in the 84th minute. He will be hoping for a bigger slice of the action when Canada face Belarus in another friendly in Doha today.
City goalkeeper Declan Rudd was released from the England Under-21 squad after not featuring in the 3-0 victory over Romania at Wycombe on Thursday night, and he kept a clean sheet for Preston in their 0-0 draw at home to Leyton Orient in League One on Saturday. Defender Ryan Bennett was originally selected by manager Stuart Pearce but did not meet up with the squad, so neither player will feature in tonight's friendly against Austria at Brighton.
